Gender-Free Role Term Usage 2

October 19th, 2017
contra, roles, gender  [html]
Update 2018-02-23: The version of this information that I'm keeping up to date is trycontra.com/roles.

More dances have switched to "Larks / Ravens", so here's an updated version of the chart I made before:

~312 series, ~130 weekends Gents / Ladies Various (series, weekends)
8 series, 5 weekends Larks / Ravens Berkeley, BIDA, Circle Left, Form the Ocean, Hayward, JP, LCFD Dance Camp (both coasts) Sebastapol, South Bay, Village Contra, YDW
1 series Bands / Barearms Rainbow Contra Dance of Western Mass, Queer Contra Chicago
1 series Jets / Rubies Portland ME
1 series Leads / Follows Brooklyn Contra

The biggest change is that [EDIT: nearly] all the "Bands / Bares" dances have switched to "Larks / Ravens", but there are also a few dances (BIDA, Sebastapol, YDW) that have swiched from "Gents / Ladies".

Update 2017-10-20: I've edited the chart above after learning that Rainbow Contra Dance of Western Mass is still using "Bands / Barearms".
